LibriVox recording of The Lodger, by Marie Belloc Lowndes. Read by Lee Ann Howlett.

The Lodger by Marie Belloc Lowndes was inspired by the Jack the Ripper murders. An older couple, the Buntings, are forced to take in lodgers to make ends meet. They are on the verge of starvation when a mysterious man, Mr. Sleuth, appears at their door and asks for lodging, paying in advance. However, when the murders of young women in London attributed to a man known only as "The Avenger" continue, the Buntings, particularly Mrs. Bunting, grow fearful that their lodger may be the murderer. (Summary by Lee Ann Howlett.)

Subject: Thee book is a "page turner"...
The book is a "page turner" but the story, the reactions and behavior of the characters, made no sense at all ...

Oh yeah we know the upstairs lodger is really jack the ripper so let's just keep it secret, shall we, why not?...and the homicidal maniac serial killer upstairs wants to take my beloved wife and daughter out so, sure, hey, why not?...and, oh yeah, the serial killer just threatened to kill me, so sure I'll keep the front door unlocked tonight, why not?

And what did the last line mean anyway, about the Buntings new employer who "both respected and feared them"? Feared them? Why? I must have missed something.

Stupid book - or, again, am I missing something? - but well written, and, as I've noted before, Lee Ann Howlett is a really really good reader.

Subject: Creepy thriller
Excellent reading by Lee Ann Howlett. She does great work for Librivox, so be sure to check out all her books.

And the book was a page turner. I didn't realize that Hitchcock made of movie of this (did he? that's from another comment), but I can picture this as a Hitchcock thriller - a very subtle and scary as we watch people fit things together and then watch how they respond to their own knowledge.

Subject: Pretty good book
Other reviews and summary pretty much cover the story line. I liked the reader and the story, but I kind of felt unsatisfied with the ending. Overall it is a good book and I would recommend it.

Subject: IMPRESSED
Having not really heard of this story other than hearing about the Hitchcock film so I thought I would give it a go. Well I Thought it was a very intresting story I dont think that it need's so much written about but just for the very good reading of it by the reader alone deserves checkin out and so I would strongly recommend it!
